Family court judge faces misconduct charges
Kentucky: Family Court Judge Tamra Gormley, of the Scott, Woodford and Bourbon Family Court district, has been charged with three separate counts of judicial misconduct related to incidences in court. The first of the charges involve her treatment of a defendant in her courtroom. She is alleged to have demeaned and denied due process rights to a man in court on a domestic violence charge. The second complaint says Gormley disregarded jurisdictional or venue requirements and pleading and notice requirements for a domestic violence and custody case, and the third involves crossing jurisdictional lines with an Indiana court.
Gormley has responded that the details are inaccurate in all of the charges, saying, "These are complaints, and I'm confident that I conducted myself appropriately in each of these". She is scheduled to appear in Fayette Circuit Court for a hearing at 9 a.m. Sept. 28.
